I like that it is raised off the ground. Our only complaint is that the rubber stopper is really hard to get into the hole to fill
I hate chicken waters. They are mostly a pain in the butt to fill. They are hard to clean. Well, this is the change of that. super easy to fill, easy to clean, and holds a TON of water.
This is our first flock of birds and the only drinker we have owned so unfortunately we have no basis for comparison. That said, the build quality is obviously excellent compared to silimarly styled feeders I saw in the local store. The removable legs were awesome for our chicks as they grew through their stages. My only criticism is that I have not found a way to turn it over without having a large spill. If I had seen the top-fill drinker first I would have purchased that instead.
